2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup Group C Betting

Gold Cup Group C Betting

There are a lot of storylines in Group C. This is considered to be the most wide open of the four groups at the Gold Cup. Every country is ranked within 26 spots of one another, so any two countries can come out of this foursome. Jamaica is the favorite, but not by too much, as Central American rivals Honduras and El Salvador are right behind them and Curacao is close behind too.

The first two games in this group will be the first games played in the Caribbean region in the history of the Gold Cup. They will be played at Independence Park in Kingston, Jamaica, on June 17, and that will give Jamaica a huge advantage in their match with Honduras.

Pitting Honduras and El Salvador together in a group will be huge too, especially since it’s the last game of the group. These two countries nominally fought a war with one another around the same time as a 1970 World Cup Qualifier, and there are still hard feelings lingering between these two teams.

Group Teams Profiles


FIFA Ranking: 56

Best Gold Cup Finish: Runner-Up (2015, 2017)

The Reggae Boyz are hoping that playing one of their matches on home soil will be enough to push them over the top and lead them to winning Group C. Jamaica has not had a ton of success at the World Cup (only qualifying in 1998), but they have been one of CONCACAF’s top teams and have finished runner-up in the last two Gold Cups.

Jamaica lost to El Salvador in Nations League qualifying in late March, and their most recent international match was a 1-0 loss to Costa Rica. The Reggae Boyz don’t have a lot of scoring, and only FC Cincinnati forward Darren Mattocks has more than 10 goals with the national team, but they defend well and can rely on their back line. Alvas Powell and Kemar Lawrence are two of the more familiar names in defense, but Jamaica would really love to have Leicester City captain Wes Morgan available too.


FIFA Ranking: 61

Best Gold Cup Finish: Runner-Up (1991)

Honduras made it to the World Cup in 2010 and 2014, but Los Catrachos were unable to beat Australia in the inter-confederation playoff to make it to the World Cup in 2018. Fabian Coito is the new head coach, and he will look to find the right mix of veterans and youngsters in his first major international competition.

Captain Maynor Figueroa and Emilio Izaguirre will be the familiar faces asked to anchor Honduras’ back line. Bryan Acosta is out to represent FC Dallas well in the tournament, while forwards Alberth Ellis and Anthony Lozano are looking to shine on the international stage.

El Salvador

FIFA Ranking: 71

Best Gold Cup Finish: Quarterfinalists (2002, 2003, 2011, 2013, and 2017)

A 1-0 loss to Bermuda is the only real blemish for El Salvador over the last year of international play. That loss nearly cost them in Nations League qualifying, as they were the final team to qualify for the competition, and missing out would have been disastrous. In the past year, El Salvador has defeated Honduras, Haiti, Guatemala, Jamaica, and Peru in international action.

Nelson Bonilla is the most prodigious scorer on the team with 14 goals in 40 matches, while brothers Darwin Ceren and Oscar Ceren provide support from the midfield. Jaime Alas is someone to keep an eye on for Los Cuscatlecos.


FIFA Ranking: 82

Best Gold Cup Finish: Group Stage (2017)

You might think that Curacao are minnows on the international stage, but they have packed some serious punch since striking out on their own. Curacao have only played under their own name since 2010, yet their ability to call upon their Dutch roots has helped them tremendously.

Curacao stunned Jamaica to win the 2017 Caribbean Cup, and now they are looking for their first win at the Gold Cup after losing all three Group Stage games two years ago. They were one of the strongest sides during Nations League qualifying, hammering Grenada, Guadeloupe, and the US Virgin Islands, and they knocked off Bolivia in a friendly last year too.

The 2019 Gold Cup is currently set to be the biggest field ever. The field has increased rapidly as interest has picked up in the event over the years, and many Central American and Caribbean nations will send teams to the event. Bermuda and Guyana are making their first appearances in the competition, while Jamaica are out to win the Gold Cup after finishing runner-up in 2015 and 2017.

The Stars and Stripes and El Tri have combined to win the last nine Gold Cups with the United States winning five titles and Mexico winning four. Those two countries are again the favorites headed into this year’s event, and they are expected to meet at the final in Soldier Field.

This will mark the first time that Gold Cup matches are held outside the North American continent. Group stage matches in San Jose, Costa Rica and Kingston, Jamaica will be the first of their kind in Central America and the Caribbean. Those stadiums are expected to be packed for the competition.
